Real Wedding: Leah + Chris’s Succulent Filled Wedding

Thanks to the talented Linda Chaja for sharing these beautiful photos with us today. I LOVE the colors, Leah’s dress and of course the beautiful succulents + billy buttons! The couple wanted the wedding & details to be very casual and due to budget made most of the details themselves. It turned out so perfect don’t you think!?

The wedding took place at QAD Inc. in Summerland Ca. QAD is an international software company located on top of a mountain over looking the ocean. The location is not open to the public for events, but the bride’s father is a personal friend of the president of QAD and allowed them to host their wedding there for free!!!!

Fun Wedding Invitations

I’m totally loving these fun invitations from illustrator Katie Kirk. She designed them for her sister and future brother-in-law’s wedding. The nuptials will be in Isla Mujeres, Mexico and their welcome home reception is in Wausau, Wisconsin. How cute is the hola and hello on the envelopes?!
